The Lehman Trilogy, which earned five 2022 Tony Awards, including Best Play, will return to the London stage next year.
The Broadway staging, which ended its run at the Nederlander Theatre in January, followed its premiere at London’s National Theatre in 2018, a North American debut at the Park Avenue Armory in 2019, and a subsequent West End engagement. The play, according to a Tweet from the National, will reopen in London in January 2023. Additional details will be announced.
Written by Stefano Massini and adapted by Ben Power, The Lehman Trilogy chronicles the success and eventual failure of the famed financial institution. The London import also won Tony Awards for director Sam Mendes, lighting designer Jon Clark, scenic designer Es Devlin, and original London company member Simon Russell Beale, who won the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play Tony for his work as Henry Lehman.
Olivier winner Adrian Lester made his Broadway debut in the play; he replaced Ben Miles (as Emanuel Lehman), who departed due to other project commitments after the show's previews were interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Original company members Beale and Adam Godley reprised their roles as Henry Lehman and Mayer Lehman, respectively.
The creative team also included costume designer Katrina Lindsay, video designer Luke Halls, composer and sound designer Nick Powell, co-sound designer Dominic Bilkey, music director Candida Caldicot, and associate director Zoé Ford Burnett with movement by Polly Bennett.
